A poem by Ben Dunk

ABSTRACTION NOVEMBER 9, 1982

 

Troubled waters rise in torrents

Where the rapturous visions are best

Too spectacular prisms for Earth current

Visualize the extreme test

Capitulate in the garden

On the outskirts of knowing

Into speculation and scheme

The tantalizing spectral dance

Violates moderation and peace

Into acrid regions the fliers

Scatter their bloody policies

Until millions remain as dyers
